Meet Your YMTJ Counselor 

I am Terri Martinez. I lead our Christian Counseling Services at YMTJ (You Matter To Jesus) here at Faith Lutheran Church.  


 My heart deeply believes in the goodness, dignity, and resiliency of the human spirit. I continue to be inspired by the growth and renewal I see in my clients, even as they navigate some of the more difficult seasons in life.  It is an honor to walk alongside others through both grief and joy, times of brokenness and times of healing. 

Although I have graduate and undergraduate degrees, I credit my own life experiences as the most valuable tools for helping others. I believe that struggle, heartache, pain, and failure are the best teachers if you are willing to learn. I have a strong faith and a heart for doing God’s will. I am deeply committed to working with those who are experiencing challenges as an individual, or as a couple. My joy comes from serving others well and helping them transform their lives.
